Wow, today is Monday and it is a start of a brand new week of tracking our nutrition, fitness and our goals for our brand new me. How we start our Monday depends on our attitude. Charles R. Swindoll said ” I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with us…we are in charge of our attitudes”. Wow, that is humbling and so true, we control how we approach each day—especially Monday—through our attitude. So today, I choose to smile when I track my nutrition, smile when I track my exercise and smile that I have began a journey to a brand new me. Psalm 68:19 “Honor and thanks be to the Lord, Who carries our heavy loads day by day. He is the God Who saves us”. Thank God, I have the 90% covered today.

A fragment of a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson is telling:
"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."
“These trials will show that your faith is genuine.” 1Pe 1:7 NLT. We will have bumps, as surely as there are bumps in a road and bumps when you hit a buckle full of water. Where are we today? Most of us are in a better place because of Spark People. Bumps give us an opportunity to stop and examine ourselves to reveal our faith in God and in what we are doing. We did not exercise as planned—bump, we ate more snacks, sweets or we went overboard at the buffet—bump, we go over and over and over in our mind how we just cannot do the work to live a more healthily life—bump. Bump, Bump, Bump. In life, bumps are going to happen. Is this bump decreasing our faith or increasing our faith? We will be tested; bumps can show our genuine faith. “When you pass through the waters…the fire…I am with you” (Isa 43:2-5 NIV). Life is hard and it does not get any easier by just sitting at our bump. Move on and live life to the fullest. Today, we will move beyond the bump.
